Abstract

Abstract Numerical solutions of the hydrodynamic equations are used to examine the wave-fields for gravity waves propagating upwards in a horizontally stratified inhomogeneous atmosphere. Calculations using a multilayer approach and also using a new direct integration method have been performed. These have shown that a pronounced reflection of the waves in the lower mesosphere is possible.
